People living in First Nation communities face challenges and barriers in accessing health care services. Two-thirds of northern residents must travel more than 90 km to see a physician.
Community-based health care providers also face geographical challenges in accessing training to build on their skills and knowledge.

The SE First Nations, Inuit and Métis program is supported through charitable donations from the Saint Elizabeth Foundation.
